LGBTQ+ Healthy Nightlife Project

The LGBTQ+ Healthy Nightlife Project is a survey and series of focus groups designed to gather feedback from LGBTQ+ community members on our experiences within nightlife establishments, specifically as it relates to feelings of safety/unsafety. Data collected from the survey and focus groups will be compiled in a report and used to inform training and development for local nightlife establishments to better serve LGBTQ+ communities. All information gathered in the survey is anonymous.


You've seen the headlines, nightlife activities while being so much fun can also become nightmares. Have you had an experience that was scary while at a nightclub, bar, or party? Do you work in the nightlife industry and want to share your experiences to hopefully create more safety in nightlife fun?

The LOFT has partnered with WestCOP- Victims Assistance Services (VAS) to create a survey to learn more about your concerns and experiences. Together, let's keep our clubs and bars safe for all.
